If you are on 11.x than go with the latest version of 11.x, RU7 MP3. It is supported for Win7

If you can, I would suggest upgrading to 12.1. The latest version of 12.1 is RU2 MP1, which was just released yesterday. It is supported on Win7.

12.1 offers better protection.

Here is a good article on the comparison between 11.x and 12.1

Hi TLT,

DEFINITELY go for the latest-available SEP 12.1 (64 bit).  It's more efficient and offers superior security thanks to Insight technologies.

All the best,

Mick  

With thanks and best regards,

Thumbs up for above - definitely go for 12.1 Versions. SEP 11.x still have several limitation in terms of supporting 64bit systems - not to mention lacking features in comparision to 12.1.
